Retainers

Congratulations!  If you're reading this page you're probably finished with your orthodontic treatment and enjoying your gorgeous, straight smile!  Review the instructions below to ensure your smile stays beautiful, straight and intact.

  • Wear your retainers every night or as instructed.
  • Remove your retainers when eating and always put them in their case! Appliances are most often lost in school lunchrooms or restaurants.
  • Once a day, thoroughly clean your retainers with a toothbrush and toothpaste to remove plaque and eliminate odors. Use warm – not hot – water. While Efferdent® or other orthodontic appliance cleaners may be helpful, they do not take the place of brushing.
  • Pets love to chew on retainers: when not in your mouth, ALWAYS keep your retainers in a retainer case.
  • Initially, you may find it difficult to speak. To get used to your retainers faster, practice speaking, reading, or singing out loud.
  • Treat your retainers with care: they’re easily breakable. Call us immediately if you lose or break your retainers.
  • Call us if you have any questions or concerns about your retainers, or they need to be adjusted. Don’t try adjusting them yourself.
  • Whenever you have an orthodontist appointment, bring your retainers with you.
  • It’s expensive replace retainers. With proper care, however, your retainers will last for years!
  • Remove your retainers whenever you go swimming.
  • Keep retainers away from hot water, hot car dashboards, pockets, the washing machine, and napkins.
